Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The location was ideal- very close to the center of Ouray. The owner was hospitable, even providing home-cooked muffins every afternoon. Breakfast was good and served in pleasant surroundings.

Included were two additional large towels for the hot tub on the deck or the hot springs located in town. Each morning we were served a wonderful breakfast.

We stayed in the Witch of the Waves room for one night. It was easy to park outside the accommodation, which is a short walk from Main Street in Ouray. The Inn is beautifully decorated in keeping with the age of the property. Our room was immaculately clean and very spacious. The website doesn't do justice to how nice the... More

This is a lovely oasis in a wonderful, scenic mountain town. we stayed two nights and felt like we were in luxurious surroundings. Ingrid, the owner, was most hospitable and had delightful breakfasts for us each morning. It is worth the splurge to spent the extra to experience this lovely setting. We enjoyed the Sea Witch room!

Clean, spacious and luxurious accommodation. The host was very friendly and gave us a tour of the place. Breakfast was all we were expecting and much more. Convenient location, within minutes you can walk over to the restaurants, hot spring, coffee place, etc.

I had a very enjoyable 2 nights at China Clipper while on a solo motorcycle tour around Colorado. The house is nicely appointed, situated a block off the main drag, and breakfasts were delicious. Really couldn't ask for more in a mountain village B&B. I would definitely stay here again when taking a trip along 550.
